I'm looking for a decent consumer grade HVLP sprayer for around $150. I'm painting my kitchen cabinets (previously unpainted). I realize that I'm not going to get a fantastic unit for that price, but I can't justify spending $300 - $1000 on a sprayer. I'm just looking for something that will give me a really nice finish in a reasonable amount of time. I'll be using oil based Sherwin Willams primer and latex Sherwin Williams enamel as the top coat.

I've been looking at the following units, but I'm open to other suggestions …
Earlex HV3000
Rockler HVLP
Campbell Hausfeld HV1001 Fine Spray
Wagner Control Spray Double Duty
Wagner Paint Crew

Earlex has good reviews. Seems like Wagner has a bad rep. I've also seen where some Wagner consumer-grade guns don't work with latex. I have some concern over proper thinning of the SW paint and the appropriate nozzle size, so advice there would be helpful also!

Charlie, I've got a small pancake compressor. I don't think it would be able to keep up a spray gun. My father-in-law has a much larger unit in his shop, but I don't think it has air filtration. It doesn't get used much either so I'm concerned about rust, dust and other contaminents. Maybe it's not as big an issue as what I'm thinking, though.
